Hello,

My name is Liz, and I recently graduated from USC with an MFA in Writing for Film & TV. At USC, I worked as a Writing tutor and Learning Assistant for USC undergraduates. Prior to graduate school, I spent four years teaching dramatic literature and study skills at Besant Hills High School, a college preparatory school in Southern California. I have also worked as a proofreader for legal and financial firms in New York City and an acting coach for all ages from kindergarten through adult.

My specialty is proofreading and copy-editing academic papers. Narrative prose is my strong suit as I am a writer of original material, but I have also worked with students in business, public policy, history, arts & literature critique, econ, and law. Areas of expertise include grammar, spelling, punctuation, word choice, sentence structure, essay construction, and thesis development. I have also edited papers for ESL students from Austria, China, Iran, Lebanon and Russia and have several tips I can offer ESL students about American academic writing style.

I work with most students via email in Microsoft Word using track changes to show my proofreading edits and suggestions. I am also available for phone consultations to talk through any structural problems with a paper, or to meet in person in Glendale, CA.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I have worked with ESL students from European, Eastern European, South American and Asian countries as a writing tutor at USC for international students.

Proofreading

I have five years experience as a legal proofreader for high-powered law and financial firms in both New York and Los Angeles. I also spent two years proofreading academic papers for college students at the University of Southern California. Narrative prose is my specialty as I am a writer of original material, but I have also worked with students in business, public policy, history, literature critique, econ, and law.

Writing

I hold a Master's Degree from USC's School of Cinematic Arts in Writing for Film and Television. While there, I tutored undergraduates in academic writing for all subjects - English, Business, Law, Public Policy, Econ, Religious Studies, and Art History to name a few. My specialty is proofreading and copy-editing, but I am also keen on structure and will help you stick to your thesis. I also love proofreading scripts to make sure they are error-free for submissions.

As the semester draws to a close, I've been helping students with the last minute crunch of paper and thesis deadlines. I'm always inspired by the human spirit and the power of the deadline at this time of year. Watching students buckle down and get more writing done than seems humanly possible is both ridiculous and awesome. I'm so grateful to be a part of it and to be of service to such brave... read more

On May 11, I officially graduated with an MFA in Writing for Film and Television from USC's School of Cinematic Arts. My daughter is now 1 year old and so I am returning to WyAant as a tutor, still teaching the same subjects, but hoping to find more students interested in learning about screenwriting.
